Statement

 

 

I am interested in the event of painting.  The informative process which unfolds as a painting  evolves, is a constant curiosity.  My intention is to let go of formulations and ideologies in order to gain access to work that is inspired by, and reflecting, the aliveness of nature. Properties of paint, color, mark making, and their relationships direct me in the process; each layer of additional color and shape brings new interactions. As these relationships expand, each painting develops in its own expression. . 

I am awed by the raw beauty, the drama, and the silence of untamed places. I am grateful to live in the Selkirk Mountains of this British Columbian landscape, where each time I look up I am inspired..  

Wilderness and painting offer an entrance to an intimate discovery of the infinite.
